Barnsley are looking to sign young Portsmouth forward Conor Chaplin as the club prepare for life back in the third tier.
There has been a lot of change at Oakwell over the past few months, with Daniel Stendel taking over as the new boss after Jose Morais was in charge as they were relegated.
Given that, changes to the squad were inevitable and there could be further ins and outs in the coming weeks.
And, one man the Yorkshire club are keen on is Chaplin who has impressed at Pompey over recent years.
The 21-year old is highly-rated at Fratton Park and has been at the club since he was a kid, however BBC Sheffield reporter Andy Giddings revealed that the Tykes are looking to do a deal for the player.

He also added that should the transfer go through it would be a permanent move if an agreement can be reached.
Chaplin hit five goals in 26 games last season but many of those appearances were as a sub.
Even though his goal record wasn’t brilliant last season, Chaplin is an exciting young player and would be a good signing for Barnsley.
You can’t imagine that Portsmouth will be keen on selling as he has proven himself to be a useful player over the years and is only going to get better.
Tykes supporters should be pleased that the club are targeting young, hungry players who have real room for development though.
